Friday Book Shelf

Pilgrim at Tinker Creek by Annie Dillard  is a book that blends poetry with hard environmental facts. It is the prose that makes your heart sing with nature's song.

I particularly loved this book because the author spent so much time hunting down the elusive muskrat until finally she learns to sit down, enjoy nature, and let the muskrat find her.

I share the author's love for muskrats. They fight, and love, and snack. And if you are very quiet and patient; they discover you and share their world. Pilgrim at Tinker Creek is such a masterpiece; stay in out of the cold and spend a winter afternoon nature walking with Annie Dillard.
